Course programme

Working with a life model, we will look at ways of representing the human form in wax sculpture. We will look at ways of working with wax and methods of making different textures.

Through demonstration, practical and discussion you will be taught as a group and helped individually as required. Handouts will accompany demonstrations. The course is structured to manage the work within the class.
